Bourbon Chicken

From My Kitchen Cafe

• 2 lbs boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
• 2 tablespoon olive oil
• 1 garlic clove, minced
• 1/4 teaspoon ginger
• 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
• 1/4 cup apple juice
• 1/3 cup light brown sugar
• 2 tablespoons ketchup
• 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
• 1/2 cup water
• 1/3 cup soy sauce

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add chicken pieces and cook until lightly browned. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside. Add remaining ingredients, heating over medium heat until well mixed and sugar has dissolved. Add chicken back to the skillet and bring to a hard boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve over rice.

Notes: This has a little kick to it, but it's sweet at the same time. Landon was the only one who needed to gulp down water after every bite...though, I think he might have been adding a little extra drama :) Chicken and rice is a staple at our house so I'm always trying to find new ways to fix it.
